Snap Cure Fire Resistant Resin for Low-Cost Aircraft Interiors

Trimer Technologies has developed a high-performance thermosetting infusion resin that provides cure times as fast as 30 seconds while achieving the mechanical properties of 350 F (177 C) cured epoxies with a Tg greater than most BMIs without a post cure. While enabling a fast cure, the system offers a long gel time to enable infusion of large components and greatly exceeds FAA fire resistance standards for aircraft interiors. This presentation will focus on the resin properties and processing for lower cost interiors as well as low cycle time composites for eVTOL.
